worship through music

In Christian ministry, music plays a powerful role in worship, edification, and evangelism. Corporate worship through music can lead people to the cross of Christ and fill them with joyful praise for the Savior. The Worship Pastor major develops your leadership skills and hones your musical talents to usher people into worship that glorifies God. You will learn from and work with musically accomplished faculty who have extensive and ongoing experience in leading corporate worship.
